Web Content Management System (WCMS)

Florida State University's web content management system (WCMS) makes it easier than ever to create and maintain mobile-first, brand-approved websites. The WCMS--available at no cost to all FSU units, with the exception of student organizations and individual web sites--offers a quick and simple editing experience while still delivering a host of features and functionality to help build modern, feature-rich websites.

Florida State University uses Drupal, an open source WCMS, which is hosted and supported on the Acquia Platform.
